Yes, 87 88 and 89 are interchangable

Should it matter that the 1500 only has the 4.3 v6 in it?

Not if it's not a V8

The computer will not comunicate with V8, emissions etc

I'd probably have to switch out wiring and such too right

the engine should mount up with no problems. you will have to swap out the wiring and sensors ect...
